More About Car and Boating

The car and boating major category includes all categories that relate to marine or automotive type industries. These include such services as new and used cars, mechanics, car wreckers, motorbike clubs and many more.

Boating

To stay up-to-date with the latest boating information, events and special discounts, there are national and local boating communities and organizations where boat enthusiasts can become a member. There are also sailing and boating schools in the country that provide proper training to individuals wanting to go onboard. Novice and even experienced skippers can go on training to improve their skills and further their knowledge in navigation. Boaters in Australia are also encouraged to keep safe on water. Speed, water condition, life jackets, and navigational equipment are some of the factors to consider ensuring safe and sound boating. Regulations however, vary between different states and territories; therefore it is recommended to check some important information found on their respective websites prior to entering their waterways. Below is the list of regulatory commissions in the country:




Cars

Similar to water vehicles, there are also clubs established for motor car owners. The motoring clubs help motorists in addressing issues associated with the acquisition and use of motor vehicles. Among the concerns of motorists are the taxes imposed by the government such as petroleum excise, charges for registration and stamp duty, and tolls on private motorways.

Most motoring clubs are supported by the Australian Automobile Association or AAA. The AAA coined as the official voice of Australian motorist - coordinates the activities of their constituent motoring clubs. Also, the association supports various programs and promotes initiatives regarding drivers safety, safe and quality vehicles, safe roads, environment protection and sustainable mobility. On the other hand, the National Transport Commission develops and submits regulatory system reform recommendations to help maintain consistent interstate road transport policies and laws. These recommendations are then reviewed by the Australian transport Council or ATC for approval. The ATC is composed of federal, state and territory Transport Ministers. Each state has a different body that looks after car, truck licensing and transportation. (Bear in mind there is some duplication with the boating list above as some authorities look after both car and boating)
